Jacked the up yesterday as i was hearing some weird bumpy noises while going over bumps and humps while driving and noticed this....

would that be classified as wear on the bushes?

Yea, they are worn,
I replaced mine a couple of weeks back with poly ones, much better and no more rattle / knock

What do you do to change the bush? Is it just a case of un bolting the clamp and slipping over a poly bush (assuming they're split) and reseating the clamp?

obviously hoping the ARB isn't too worn?

Cheers, Liam

Yes it is just like that but there are 2 or 3 different sizes 18mm 19mm 20mm I think.

thanks, i just ordered my pair of bushes and i made sure they split. didn't want any-more drama as the bolts holding the clamps look pretty rusted from 13years of not being loosened.
